    Drescher of the N&O looked really bad in a twitter exchange with Brad Bethel. Essentially said that the N&O would take the story in the direction that best serves their own interests -- in other words, that sells papers in Raleigh and brings clicks to their website. (Watch out for their site sucking your Facebook credentials.)

    Only if the authorities know about this story and know exactly where to look for the various versions and for the discussions at the time. The N&O actively pushed the modified versions into the search engines and everywhere else they could find online. Most of the N&O print edition ran with that first update, but the Charlotte Observer mostly ran the original; it was probably too late to push that change on them without drawing attention to the differences and raising serious questions.

    As it was, Kane and the N&O were able to bask in their glory, mostly report on reaction stories, and let others push the story. Everyone just took her word and asked no further questions. "Why would she lie?" Many people at UNC in shame believed her; some still do. No other names from her, Mercer still worked at UNC and might yet have a solid libel case.

    http://www.newsobserver.com/2012/11/17/2490476/insider-unc-tolerated-cheating.html

    The original version of that story Willingham claimed that she had seen a tutor doing a paper for an athlete, that she had reported it to UNC officials, naming Robert Mercer, and that UNC had taken no action (coverup). That story did not name the tutor or athlete, but it savaged Mercer. By Sunday night a few of us online and with help from many others had discovered that Willingham was asked by another tutor to review and give a second opinion to Mercer on the infamous Jennifer Wiley-Michael McAdoo paper. UNC had responded forcefully. If Kane did not have two different names from MW, then he and the N&O had libeled a non-public figure. A few hours after that was posted, the N&O deleted the worst about Mercer from their site, but it was already on the AP wire.

    I first thought it possible MW had not learned of the UNC actions, now know better.

    The only thing that could be more criminal is the gullibility of the typical ABCER, who swallowed that load of bull hook/line/sinker. (^^^^see above lol^^^)

    The online version of Kane's Nov 2010 story that first identified Willingham as a whistleblower was updated by Kane on Jan 9, 2014 and is dramatically different. The Orwellian version now online dovetails with Willingham's current version of things. The page when displayed has no indication that it is not the version from Nov 17, 2010. But down in the source, there is an update time of "2014-01-09T13:18:56Z".

    I think this might approach obstruction of a criminal investigation.

    Look at this and spread the word quickly in every way you can: UNC officials, places like Inside Carolina, social media, DA Woodall, …

    Those of you with special computer talents need to carefully archive all the resources and scripts that are used for tracking accesses, discovering search terms, and a lot more. Nasty "debug" capabilities.
